Tabbed by DJ ('DiddyD' on ultimateGuitar.com)
8th May 2016

A simple way to play it on an acoustic guitar.

For the 5th chords in Verses 1, 2 & 4, mute the bridge with the palm
of the hand. Listen very carefully for where the chords change,
only the A5 falls on the first beat of the bar, 
the rest are just behind the first beat.

  A5                  E5
| /_/_/_/ /_/_/_/ | /_/_/_/ /_/_/_/ |
  ^                   ^
    G5                E5      G5
| /_/_/_/ /_/_/_/ | /_/_/_/ /_/_/_/ |
    ^                 ^       ^

CAPO: 3rd fret (Sounds in the key of Eb)

Chord names and fret positions are relative to the capo:
A5  = 577xxx    F  = 133211    E     = 022100   A5 * = x02255
E5  = 022xxx    G  = 355433    Am    = x02210   Am7  = x02213
G5  = 355xxx    Em = 022000    Fmaj7 = 133210

A lot of live versions are set a semi -tone lower than the album
version, so capo at 2nd fret to play along with those.
A nice acoustic session of this song can be found on the album:
'Dermot O'Leary Presents The Saturday Sessions 2011'.

[Verse 1]
  A5                   E5                       G5
There's a fire start - ing in my heart, reach - ing a fever pitch,
                  E5                    G5
And it's bring - ing me out the dark,
  A5               E5
Finally, I can see you crystal clear,
        G5                                  E5              G5
Go a - head, and sell me out, and I'll lay your shit bare!


[Verse 2]
 A5                             E5
See how I'll leave, with ever - y piece of you,
         G5                         E5           G5
Don't underestimate the things that I will do,
  A5                   E5
There's a fire start - ing in my heart,
        G5
Reach - ing a fever pitch,
                 E5                     G5
And it's bring - ing me out the dark!


[Verse 3]
F                 G                  Em
    The scars of your love remind me of us,
                F
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all,
               G                        Em
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless,
                E
I can't help feeling...


[Chorus]
                        Am                       G
...We could have had it all-------------------------,
                     (You're gonna wish you ...never had met me!)

                F                                   G
Rolling in the deep------------------------,   you had my heart...
             (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep!)

         Am                       G
...In - side------------ of your hand,
       (You're gonna wish you ...never had met me!)

          F                                   G
And you played it     ...to the beat!
       (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep!)


[Verse 4]
 A5                   E5
Baby, I have no stor - y to be told,
           G5                                 E5               G5
But I've heard one of you, and I'm gonna make your head burn,
 A5                            E5
Think of me, in the depths of your despair,
       G5                             E5                    G5
Mak - ing a home down there, as mine sure won't be shared!



[Verse 5]
   F                        G                 Em
             The scars of your love remind me of us,
(You're gonna wish you ...never had met me,  tears are gonna fall...)

               F
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all,
         (...Rolling in the deep!)

  F                        G
             The scars of your love,
(You're gonna wish you ...never had met me!)

                 Em                      E
They leave me breathless, I can't help feeling...
               (Tears are gonna fall,  rolling in the deep!)


[Chorus]
                         Am                       G
...We could have had it all-------------------------,
                       (You're gonna wish you ...never had met me!)

               Fmaj7                                 G
Rolling in the deep------------------------,    you had my heart...
              (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep!)

         Am                       G
...In - side------------ of your hand,
       (You're gonna wish you ...never had met me!)

        Fmaj7                                 G
And you played it ...to the beat,        we could have had it...
       (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep!)

   Fmaj7   G                     Am     G
...All---------, rolling in the deep-------,
                      Fmaj7
You had my heart in - side----- of your hand,
          G
But you played it  ...with a beating!



[Bridge - tap guitar body on the off-beat]

Throw your soul through every open door,
                                      A5 *

...You played it to the beat!
